Zak Brown looks down at 'the Alligator car'



New McLaren executive director Zak Brown has been walking around the MTC in Woking and savouring the legendary team's heritage.

He posted this pic on Twitter and we must admit that the McLaren M19C is indeed a beautiful car.

Called 'the Alligator car', the M19C raced in 1972 in the capable hands of Denny Hulme and Peter Revson. And by the way, the bulges on the side of the M19 cockpit contained the fuel load.

Any side impact and the rolled aluminum would split, and spill the fuel with all the wicked consequences you can imagine. Fortunately, that never happened..
